It was a great start to the trading week this Monday for the S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) and most ASX shares.

After a rough week last week, the ASX 200 looks to have turned over a new leaf today, recording a healthy rise of 0.77%. That leaves the index at 7,761 points.

This happy start for ASX shares comes after a mixed close to the American trading week last Friday night (our time).

The Dow Jones Industrial Average Index (DJX: .DJI) had a cracking time, shooting 1.51% higher.

But the Nasdaq Composite Index (NASDAQ: .IXIC) wasn't quite as lucky, slipping 0.012% lower.

Let's get back to this week though and check out how the different ASX sectors travelled through today's jubilent stock market moves.

Winners and losers

Although most sectors recorded a rise today, there were a couple that missed out.

The first and worst of those was the gold sector. The All Ordinaries Gold Index (ASX: XGD) was hammered, tanking by 1.41%.

Tech shares were also left out in the cold. The S&P/ASX 200 Information Technology Index (ASX: XIJ) went backwards by 0.72%.

Communications stocks had a sad day too, as you can see from the S&P/ASX 200 Communication Services Index (ASX: XTJ)'s 0.04% retreat.

But that's it for the losers. Turning to the winners now, it was financial shares that came in the hottest. The S&P/ASX 200 Financials Index (ASX: XFJ) was on fire, banking a gain of 1.54% this Monday.

Real estate investment trusts (REITs) also had a great time, with the S&P/ASX 200 A-REIT Index (ASX: XPJ) shooting 1.49% higher.

Utilities stocks were also hot property. The S&P/ASX 200 Utilities Index (ASX: XUJ) was just behind the A-REIT Index, soaring 1.47%.

Energy shares weren't quite as radiant, but the S&P/ASX 200 Energy Index (ASX: XEJ) still managed a lift worth 0.68%.

Industrial stocks performed similarly, evident from the S&P/ASX 200 Industrials Index (ASX: XNJ)'s 0.57% bounce.

ASX mining shares also had a great day. The S&P/ASX 200 Materials Index (ASX: XMJ) surged 0.41% higher.

Consumer discretionary stocks were also on investors' radar. The S&P/ASX 200 Consumer Discretionary Index (ASX: XDJ) saw its value increase by 0.36%.

Its consumer staples counterpart fared slightly worse, illustrated by the S&P/ASX 200 Consumer Staples Index (ASX: XSJ's 0.22% uptick.

Our final winners were healthcare shares. The S&P/ASX 200 Healthcare Index (ASX: XHJ) inched up 0.14% by the closing bell.
